So you don't have a boat but still want to have a fish... well you've come to the right place! Bowen has some great, easily accessible fishing all around the coastline. You can try the beaches or the mouths of the local creeks and Don River for a wide variety of species, like whiting, flathead, trevally, bream, etc. There is great fishing off the Town Jetty right where the Bowen Family Fishing Classic is being held. There have been a LOT of BIG fish caught off the jetty... try floating a pilchard for a mackeral or a strip of mullet for a trevally or reddie... and hold on tight!
